The Ladies of Horror

Pélé’s Wrath
by E.A. Black

Lucy and I climbed over the boulders, heading for the car with the volcano at our backs. The Pacific filled the horizon, its calm blue waters hiding turmoil beneath the waves. A storm surged in the distance. We needed to get back to our hotel before rain pelted us. Lucy had stuffed her pockets with lava rocks, but I had refrained from doing so.
I tried to warn her. You don’t take Pélé’s lava rocks or she will unleash her wrath upon you. I knew it was true. I read about it on the Internet. Lucy refused to listen, calling me a superstitious twit.
On the way back to the hotel, our car blew a tire. The garage where we bought a new tire gouged us. The mechanic also found a brake problem we had no choice but to fix. Lucy came down with a scorching case of food poisoning after eating improperly cleaned fugu. She could have died. She spent the next two days in the hospital. Her favorite paua shell necklace broke. She dropped her iPhone and the glass cracked. Her boyfriend, being a cowardly ass, broke up with her via email. Facebook put her in jail for a week for posting a book cover with sideboob on it after some cretin reported her. And then her favorite cat died.
All this happened within four days. On the fifth day, we drove to the volcano and returned Pélé’s lava rocks with our most heartfelt apologies for stealing from her. From that point on, the bad luck ceased.
That didn’t stop us from white-knuckling it all the way home on the turbulent plane ride. We had learned our lesson. Never piss off a goddess.
